Not a state, but another story of a sheriff recommending refusal. Obviously, I'm sure the state legislature will comment at some point ...
Oregon Sheriff


I am not sure I am allowed to go into details, but the sheriff of a major county in Colorado has stated his refusal to enforce unconstitutional laws here.
I'm not trying to be cute, and I have seen the memo he sent to county deputies.
OTOH, Lickenpooper will likely not agree with him.

How about Idaho? http://www.legislature.idaho.gov/legislation/2010/H0589.pdf

Passed in 2010 still in effect.

1 (5) Section 11, Article I, of the Constitution of the State of Idaho
2 clearly secures to Idaho citizens, and prohibits government interference
3 with, the right of individual Idaho citizens to keep and bear arms. This
4 constitutional protection in the Idaho Constitution, which was approved by
5 Congress and the people of Idaho, and the right exists as it was understood at
6 the time that the compact with the United States was agreed upon and adopted
7 by Idaho and the United States in 1890.

Alaska is in:
http://www.legis.state.ak.us/basis/get_bill.asp?bill=HB%20%2069&session=28

11 out of 40 reps currently co-sponsor and the GOP owns the house, senate, and governor's house. The GOP Speaker of the AK House and the Chair of the Judiciary Committee support the legislation.

Basically WY style but making enforcement of federal law a Class B misdemeanor rather than a felony.

Don't forget we also have the Firearm Freedom Act (I dont remember the bill number) but that was passed and signed 2+ years ago.

Basically anything made in state (minus pins, springs, and screws) and does not leave the state, the feds can't touch and the state may choose to defend the person the Feds Tag.

You can add Larimer County, CO.

You can see it on his facebook:

https://www.facebook.com/SheriffJustinSmith

"Preserving our Constitutional Republic

The United States was very deliberatively established as a Constitutional Republic. John Adams said it succinctly "We are a nation of laws, not a nation of men." Our founding was based on the clear understanding that we are endowed by our Creator with our unalienable Rights. While our Constitution clearly defined these Rights, it did not create or establish these rights and no government official has the authority to take these Rights away.

The most basic of these Rights include life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. To assure the protection of these Rights, our Constitution was amended in 1791 with the Bill of Rights. The second Right articulated in the amendments was the Right of self-protection by individual citizens through the private ownership and possession of firearms.

Our founders had the wisdom to establish a nation where citizens granted the authority to be governed from the local level up to the federal level and they made it clear that the powers of the federal government were to be limited to only the areas defined in our Constitution. The government established by our Constitution is a divided government which created a balance of powers between the legislative, judicial and executive branches. Each branch has limited powers and each has an ability to keep the other in check. The executive branch is empowered to enforce laws, but not to establish laws.

That has not changed.

Colorado was established with the Constitutional Office of Sheriff. Statutes define the specific duties of the Sheriff, but through tradition and law, it is clear, the Sheriff's duties include the absolute obligation to protect the Rights of the citizens of the county, and the Sheriff is accountable directly to those citizens. The Colorado Sheriff occupies this independent office which is not a subservient department of county, state or federal government.

As Sheriff, I will not:
• Enforce unconstitutional federal laws
• Obey unconstitutional laws
• Allow others to violate the Constitutional Rights of those in my county

I encourage thinking citizens of all political affiliations, or no political affiliation, to carefully and logically follow the shell game that is occurring before their very eyes. The only possible way to achieve "universal background checks" for private transactions of lawfully-owned firearms is to register every single firearm in existence in our nation. Otherwise, the federal government could never prove the transaction of a firearm. Anyone who fails to go through with such registration will be defined as a criminal by our federal government. That same government which has all too often has failed to enforce the current laws against criminal predators, will then start to discriminately target and prosecute law-abiding Americans who are simply exercising their Constitutionally recognized Right to keep and bear arms.

We must understand that while we are talking about the Right to keep and bear arms today, we could just as easily be talking about the Right to lawfully assemble and petition our government, the Right to free speech, the Right to worship freely, the Right to be free from unreasonable search and seizure or any of our other Rights. They all have to be defended without fail.

I will continue to honor my oath to uphold the Constitution and protect citizens of my county. I will not allow unconstitutional proposals to stand. County by county, state by state, we must protect these God-given Rights that so many fine Americans before us have defended with their lives over the last 237 years. We will remain a Constitutional Republican for as long as we are respectful of these Rights.
